SMOKING is an addiction. Addicts are so hooked to it that giving it up remains impossible for them. They smoke at their workplaces, which is one of the worst aspects as non-smokers are exposed to passive smoking. Recently, a plastic company in Karachi caught fire after a worker threw his cigarette. This resulted in a fire.
The government has banned smoking at work, transportation and all public places but, unfortunately, there is no implementation of the law.
